My Sr. Director had sent out an email with an added incentive for doing the booking blitz, and I expressed to her my disappointment at not participating, because my schedule for January is already full. (I have 11 shows booked for Jan. - that to me is overbooked, because I'd promised DH in Jan I'd go back to an 8 show a month schedule) She sent me back this email, which I've excerpted, because some of it doesn't pertain...but I thought it was a great explanation, and gave me the motivation I needed to work with my team to make sure THEY have a great booking blitz! "....The incentive is really to help Directors & Team Leaders with a tool to encourage their teams to book strong in January which will definately benefit Directors and Team Leaders in building back their consultants in the month that we traditionally lose many of our team. It's a tool that they are giving to us so that we don't need to use our own money and time to do it ourselves. Now, you are going to ask yourself why then am I doing just that, investing my time and my own money. I am following the lead of many upper level directors to sweeten the pot for my ENTIRE downline even more so that my Leader team doesn't need to do it either. MOST consultants, probably 85% don't have a booking on their calendar yet for January. Hope that this helps to explain it a bit. When explained to me, it made complete sense from the business point of view. The benefit given to those of use who DO have bookings in January already is the Triple Points for the trip with the shows held the week of Jan. 5-10. If you don't have shows booked in that time frame then you get to work on that for the booking incentive!" Sheri K.
